Front Running

A CNN poll shows (drum roll, please) Rudy Giuliani to be the front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2008. Giuliani has support from 33 percent of those polled, followed by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with 30 percent. Newt Gingrich (remember him?) and outgoing Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney trail with 9 percent each.

What does all this mean? Merely that polls this early are meaningless.

For more on Rudy's chances, see this trenchant post by Josh Marshall.
